None of these modifications are what I would call extreme. Fire lapping is time consuming, but not difficult, and probably accounts for more improvement in accuracy than the other work. The gun is however an early Vaquero, and judging by my last four Ruger purchases, a much better fit and and finish than what seems to be presently common from Ruger.
